Italy: Berlusconi and Grillo bite Bersani in the rear end

INTERNATIONAL PAPERS, Tues. 26/02/13: Italian elections are in the spotlight. With the Senate likely to end up in a stalemate, La Stampa says Italy in ungovernable. Other papers focus on the candidates: "Flop for Monti", says La Republicca, "Boom for Grillo" says Il Messaggero. Meanwhile, Il Giornale says Berlusconi was the man of the hour - not surprising, since he owns the daily. Also, the Guardian says the Catholic Church has a "problem with sex".
